Photo filter app “CameraBag” makes the iPhone camera a lot more fun

Mon, Jun 8, 2009


Apple is expected to announce a new iPhone with a better camera (and auto-focus) later today, so why not take some time to look at a cool photo app for the iPhone.

CameraBag is an app that adds “filters” to your photos, changing the look and feel of your pictures in the process.  The app is a lot of fun, is affordable at $2.99, and once MMS hits the iPhone when OS 3.0 is released, this app will undoubtedly be in heavy rotation.

The app description notes that “CameraBag focuses on emulating styles and processes from some of the most interesting cameras of the past to enhance the mood of an image“, and some of the bundled filters include:

Magazine – Emulates a common photographic effect used in fashion photo shoots

Helga – A square-format toy camera feel with washed-out highlights and old-school vignetting

1974 – Capturing the 70’s look with faded and tinted shots

Cinema – Dramatic, moody, wide-screen stills

1962 – Dynamic black and whites from the photojournalists of a bygone era

Mono – Smooth gradation from black to white

Infrared – Simulation of the popular landscape photography technique

Fisheye – You guessed it, the fish eye lens effect

You can check out CameraBag on iTunes over here.
